Although a formidable challenge, we were able to create a taper on this headband by tightening the weave toward each end--a truly unique design. The totally hidden, hard-gold frame assures a secure and perfect fit
All of our Turk's-head jewelry is hand-woven. The exact origin of the Turk's-head is unknown however we have found several references to braids and turbans. The design dates back to Ancient Egyptians, and has been used aboard wooden ships for millennia.
The Turk's-head weave was perfect from conception and is really impossible to improve upon. However, we have made other pieces with the Turk's-head design in mind -- most notably, the Prolong Knot.
All Turk's-head jewelry is individually woven, therefore no two pieces of the same design are identical.
